Sakellaropoulou asked Tsiodras to convey her warm thanks to the members of the scientists' committee for the pandemic, as well as to the medical and nursing staff striving to tackle the unprecedented crisis in extremely difficult conditions.

After the briefing, Sakellaropoulou underlined the need to strictly observe the measures that have been decided as it is the only way to contain the coronavirus cases. She stressed that the inevitable fatigue, doubts and even more so more indifference and fake news should not cloud people's judgement about this dangerous virus. She also noted that the coming weeks will be crucial for everyone, while both the state and citizens have a duty to do their best to stop the pandemic and return social life to normal as soon as possible.
